Documentum Vol 1

by Dawn Kim, Stephen Shore and William Boling

Documentum is a guest-curated periodical archiving & examining the cultural ephemera of our time. Volume 1 examines the phenomenon of Instagram through the eyes of artists, writers, and cultural thinkers. It was founded by William Boling, Dawn Kim and Stephen Shore.

The first issue of Documentum is an over-sized newsprint publication examining and archiving the photo and other image driven work of outstanding artists who are engaging with Instagram in a committed way. This is done with the understanding that Instagram and other social media platforms for picture sharing are changing the way pictures have meaning. We are intent on archiving what is happening in this space now with the understanding that in the future, Instagram will be different. And we will be glad then to have this core sample of what it is now.

“Ink” began accidentally. My son Jonah insisted on trying nocturnal squid fishing one summer in Maine. To my amazement, he and his dad caught a small bucket of squid, pulling their translucent alien bodies out of the dark water. The next day we were cleaning them on sheets of old newspaper, and I found myself captivated by the interplay of abstraction and image. The squid’s black ink spread democratically across Prada ads, wedding announcements, and images of the bereaved after a shooting in a movie theater.” 

— Tanya Marcuse

This folio includes 5 original archival pigment prints by Tanya Marcuse from her series “Ink," printed on Canson Printmaking Rag 310 gsm by the photographer.
